Queen Bay had an unsuccessful HOH last week since her target, Brett, stayed, but that’s not why she ran away with the votes. She made the monumental error of telling Rachel about her Power App, which culminated with Brett exposing it to the whole house during his eviction speech. It’s like she didn’t know the whole point of the Identity Theft app was to throw a wrench into the nominations secretly to induce chaos and paranoia. That’s on top of her controlling attitude, yelling at everyone from her targets to her own alliance members. There was absolutely no reason for her to chew out Rockstar after the vote last week.
Coming in second with 17 percent was Sam, who only won the Week 4 HOH so she could control the nominees since her Bonus Life app was automatically going to be used. The week was “successful” in the sense that Kaitlyn flopped the Bonus Life puzzle and didn’t return to the game. But it was a total social fail for Sam, who personally attacked and slut-shamed Kaitlyn and Haleigh for flirting with the guys in the house and wearing skimpy clothing.
Kaitlyn was close behind in third with 15 percent. She’s certainly not the first person to backdoor an ally, but she really had no reason to yet. Swaggy C was talking about her behind her back, but nothing truly egregious, and likely would’ve been a problem for multiple people’s games later on… such as Tyler’s. He pulled a fast one on Kaitlyn and got her to do his dirty work. This was an unnecessary move for Kaitlyn’s game and made her a target, but we don’t have many complaints for the drama it produced.
Scottie received 4 percent for his objectively best HOH reign — he also won Veto and had full control of the week. Plus, he accomplished his goal of breaking up the bros, even though Winston and not Brett left in the end.
With 3 percent, Tyler had the “best” week so far, way back in Week 1. He took the easy way out with the nominations, picking the people, Sam and Steve, who did the worst in the HOH comp, but he slowly but surely masterminded the blindside on Steve by flipping Kaitlyn. And he’s been the covert puppeteer in the house since.
